Patient Comments (2)

I have been seeing Dr,Distad for more than ten years for myasthenia gravis. She takes time to discuss my progress and genuinely cares about my health. She stays well informed on treatments. Also when I have needed her advice outside of office hours, she has responded quickly.

I would give her no stars if I could. She should not be practicing medicine. See my long review.
